Girl Scouts discover their special skills and talents.
They connect with other girls, make friends, learn about teamwork,
problem solve, and develop healthy relationships.
They take action to make the world a better place.
As Girl Scouts, they have the opportunity to participate in exciting activities, go on wonderful trips to far-off places, learn about new careers, create their own community improvement project, meet great friends, and help make the world a better place.
That's not all. They learn about setting goals, managing money, and marketing by selling the famous and delicious Girl Scout Cookies.
Ultimately, they’ll gain the skills needed to join the next generation of leaders. Everything they do—whether it is performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at helping the Girl Scout. Do you know an adult that would like to be part of this amazing movement?
